Enzymes are proteins that act as biological catalysts. They control the speed of chemical reactions in the body.

Believe it or not enzymes are an essential ingredient to good health, they have so many amazing benefits for the body!

-Clean and purify Blood 

Invaders found in the blood are generally made up of proteins. The enzyme protease breaks down proteins therefore cleaning out the blood, eating away at anything contaminating your veins.

Enzymes in general deliver nutrients to the cells in the body. They carry away toxic wastes, aid in the digestion of food, purify the blood, balance cholesterol and triglyceride levels, deliver hormones by feeding and fortifying the endocrine system, and  feed the brain. All of these benefits help to contribute in strengthening  the immune system.

-Shed excess weight 

The endocrine system is what runs our metabolism. Once we are able to nourish the endocrine system and get the bowels working as they should to digest our food rather than turn it into fat, we have a successful combination for losing weight. It is one of the healthiest ways to shed a few kilos of fat and not muscle, especially when combined with a clean diet and exercise.

-Break down fats 

When taking digestive enzymes it takes stress off the gallbladder, liver, and pancreas. When taken between meals, they can be of great support systemically and in some cases stored in the liver for use when needed.

-Improve the appearance of your skin

Enzymes are absolutely essential for keeping the skin in beautiful young condition.  Enzymes help fight the aging process by increasing blood supply to the skin keeping it well nourished and well cleansed.

-Aid the bodies digestion process

The enzymes found in your digestive systems job is to break down large molecules into smaller molecules. Most people require 3 to 10 days to break down, assimilate and excrete the waste of any given meal. Thus our body is in a constant state of digestion.

Where to get enzymes?

Enzymes are virtually in all living things.When we eat fresh, uncooked foods, the foods still contain active enzymes. However by cooking food or highly processing foods we break down and inactivate the enzymes.

Raw plant foods are our primary source of food enzymes. However if you don’t eat approximately 80% raw there is a high chance you are not getting enough enzymes in your body. Luckily enough you can supplement with enzymes and see successful results of taking them fast.
